PhD Nerds: Carbon described in one word

On April 27, 2012, in Comics, Humor, PhD nerds, by Amiya

Without doubt carbon is the most important element. Perhaps it’s chemistry is richer than the chemistry of all other elements combined. You remove this single element and life would seize to exist. At one end it looks like ugly charcoal and on the other end it is the most beautiful thing in the world in the form of diamond. Even in it’s raw form it shows such rich properties – from buckminsterfullerenes, carbon nano tubes to graphene transistors. It’s impact on technology is immense. So how do you describe something this diverse and rich in one single word? Here is the answer…

PhD Nerds: What will you do with your time machine?

On October 13, 2011, in Comics, PhD nerds, by Amiya

Time is a mysterious concept. In Einstein’s account of space-time as a unified concept – the only way time differs from other spatial dimension is via a minus sign. While physicists have a much better understanding of time now there are still many open questions when it comes to time-travel. While as per relativity traveling to the future is quite simple (all one needs to do is travel fast) it is still not clear if time-travel to the past is possible due to many paradoxes it poses. For an interesting account of time using simplified euclidean geometry take a look at this.

PhD Nerds: String theory and the curse of dimensionality

On October 5, 2011, in Blog, Comics, irregular, PhD nerds, by Amiya

When initially proposed string theory was thought to be preposterous, apart from the mathematical beauty there was nothing so beautiful about being associated with it. Getting associated with it was at that time a career suicide. String theory was not only suggesting some radically different picture of reality, for it to work it suggested that there are far more than 4 dimensions (3 spetial and temporal). Their prediction was varying so much (from 26 at one time to 11 at another)
